Public libraries provide children with early opportunities to develop early literacy skills to help children enjoy language, books, reading, and learning. Young children are just beginning language development. Library programs help develop a children's attention span. It's never too early to read to kids. Children who are exposed to libraries and books have better success in learning to read.
Early Literacy Storytimes are a series of 30 minute programs with stories, flannel boards, fingerplays and a short film. Each week an early literacy skill will be highlighted. There are 6 early literacy skills: print awareness, phonological awareness, letter knowledge, vocabulary, print motivation, and narrative skills.
